Warwick Sport is a joint partnership between the SU and the University’s department of PE and Sport. ALL fees go into a budget which is spent ONLY on Sport and related activities. The SU provides resources in student activities, and also the Sports Officer – however, none of these are paid for by Warwick Sport memberships or fees.
10,300 students members of Warwick Sport 6,200 students involved in 70 sports clubs £65,000 grant from the University £612,600 costs to cover each year o From staffing costs, insurance, BUCS, club grants, professional services, facilities maintenance, etc.
6,200 students involved in 70 sports clubs 11,250 students involved in 250+ societies 250 student staff working across our 6 F&B outlets 760 SSLC reps & 9 faculty reps 55 student councillors including 4 liberation officers £150,000 of student house deposits won back by our Advice Centre in 2013 £7m turnover 12/13
Rely on £2m/year from the University to run everything we do £1,200/day rent – ouch! Last year spent £2.792m on student activities, (societies and sports clubs), the advice centre and on representation. In short, we don’t have a lot of money!
We are one of the largest Students’ Unions in the country, yet have one of the smallest staff teams! Ridiculous/unsustainable right? Right. Things take a little longer to process and organise then we all might hope, but it’s better than the alternative… o … cutting Sports Clubs and Societies and giving up our Student Representation.

Ruby Compton-Davies Sports Officer Elect Ruby will take office on 1 st August 2014!
Find it on the 2 nd floor of SUHQ This is your room – don’t knock, just enter! Use it for exec meetings, for printing and guillotining, for designing posters, and for filling out and submitting forms. Get to know the staff, they are here to support you (kind of hard to do that if they don’t know what you’re up to!).
o If you have club sessions in Warwick Sport facilities, then you will need to apply for regular bookings with Gemma Morris. o If you wish to hold an event in Warwick Sport facilities, then you will need to submit an event pack to Gemma Morris. Don’t worry yet, you’ll get an about these things nearer the time.
You can book SU spaces too! IKEA Membership Space Copper Rooms 2 SUHQ Meeting Rooms Mighty Duck/Terrace Bar/Copper Rooms 1 o All with or or “Bookings” in Exec Resources
To book your club in for circling, you need to complete this form o Wait to hear from the Sports Officer as to which room you will be circling in. o If you’re expecting a particularly big circle one week, ask the Sports Officer in advance if you can use the Chill Out space.

Can’t withdraw money from your account without filling in a form. The 2 most common forms: o Money Requests (used to withdraw money or pay for goods and services); and o Sales Invoice Requisitions (used to raise invoices, typically to get sponsors to deposit money into your account). All forms can be found at
Typical timeframes that you can expect for payment after filling in forms: Money Requests: o BACS payments take 3-4 working days o Cash takes 1-2 working days (collected from Finance Office) o Cheques take 1-2 working days Sales Invoices: o Money deposited into your account within 3-4 working days (except if you are sponsored by Kelseys!).
To deposit money into your account: Go to the Finance Office (2 nd Floor of SUHQ on the RHS) and hand the cash to Paula on the front desk. Make sure your cash is counted (and bagged where depositing coins). You will be handed a receipt – keep this safe! The money will then be deposited into your account on the next working day.
The usual process for paying for goods is that an exec member will pay for the items upfront and then reimburse themselves from the club funds via a Money Request form. This is fine (although double-check you can be reimbursed for the goods you want to purchase if they total more than £100). If you don’t want to/can’t individually pay for the items first (and then reimburse yourself), we have a Union credit card that can be used to pay for the goods/services directly instead. This requires a Money Request form to be used.
Things which might make the process take longer: o You need 2 exec signatures on the forms o All forms exceeding £100 need the Sports Officer’s signature o Finance Office opening hours are 10am – 3pm weekdays o Individuals who require payment (DJs/guest speakers etc.) need to be registered with HMRC o Get the correct codes for the forms! o Charity Law!
